Lorenzo just merged my first run script to runit-services package. With
his kind and detailed feedback it was pretty straight forward.

The diff in the I had to provide in the end is pretty minimal, see the last
amended commit in the merge request:

So in case you like to provided some tested (!) run scripts, maybe this
can serve as a motivation to do so.

You basically just fork his repo, create a git branch, add your run script
and provide a merge request. In case you provide several, I am not sure
whether Lorenzo would like a MR per run script or would accept several
(probably related) run scripts in one MR.

For building the package I used cowbuilder, but in order to see whether
the package can be built for Debian I used:


in "/etc/pbuilderrc". The resulting package did install just fine on Devuan
as well.
